A while back I did a 50k trail run near Lake Tahoe, on the Tahoe Rim Trail, called the TRT.  I'm still trying to figure out how to pain with acrylics, so I tried my hand at painting a picture from one of my photos. 

I'm reasonably happy with how the rocks came out. They look like rocks. The rest looks....I'm not sure what I don't like about it.  Too much color? Too neat? 

(Update: This painting sold in 2020.)

Later, I tried to paint picture of Katherin Lake, which is near Mt. Baldy in Santa Fe.  This one, I feel, was less of a success.
